Reviews from Media

Martin K.

Soft Glow

"Spherical aberration caused the soft glow in vintage lenses and has been designed out in many modern lenses, except for Lensbaby lenses. The Velvets are the softies and the Velvet 28 more so than the 56 or 85. That said the lens does get sharp enough and is a gem for landscape images near dawn or dusk."

Judi G.

Superior Macro Capabilities

"This lens is excellent! You can get as close as you want to your subject, superior macro capabilities. Creating different looks as you open and close the aperture gives you multitudes of options. When I shoot macro, I use all the apertures, then choose from a wide range of files depending upon the editing process I'm working in"

Jon Sienkiewicz for Shutterbug

Extra Depth of Field

"Lensbaby Velvet 28 is also excellent for close-up work. If you’ve never shot close-up with a wideangle you’re in for a real treat; the extra depth of field and unique perspective engender new avenues of creativity."
